The way to pronounce in Koreans is ‘Chi-ruh Chi-ruh‘ . Right before the opening of their first outlet in KL, we got to experience Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory at 313 Somerset Orchard Road, Singapore.

Korean Fried chicken have also grown their popularity over the years Due to product placement in a lot of Korean Drama. Fried chicken is also known as their staple home cook dish before it got popularize. The raise of the popularity also making Chir Chir expand its wing with more than 100 stores in South Korea.

Love their ambiance, as it is very simple, cheeky and playful environment that have a lot of props hanging here and there.

Being a fun chicken house, they also provide you with their signapture utensils that allow your finger to slip it in and clip onto any of your preferred chicken pieces and bite from there without dirtying your fingers. They do prepare a mini bucket at the side to let you throw away the bones.

Menu is filled with pictures that makes us easy to pick our choices.

When the first drink arrived, I got excited as this is the first time I see an interesting fusion beer, known as their Signature Chir Cream Beer. Smooth whipped cream on the top to add a little smooth and if you drink it together indeed it is quite interesting.

Some of the menu recommended drinks are Passion Fruit and Blue Sky Tok! Tok! Both are available in alcohol or cocktail. In these drink, they have a little twist of flavor in each cup as the base is making the difference of taste after you stir it.

Red-gizer, is the most interesting as it is top with a canned of Red Bull. The trick to  drink this as you need to slide out the can and let Red Bull flood the mug, then mix it together.

See how Esther is enjoying her drink.

Diners who think Fried Chicke is too heavy then, Honey Grape Salad is a great option . Filled with seedless grapes, raisins, nuts and whipped cream. I love the little thin cracker that gives you the little crack and aromatic flavor which is needed.

Chir Chir (14)

Another dish that will slightly mess up with your tongue is this Spicy Topokki. Serve in fiery red soup base that might give you an instant impression that it spicy and will make make you sweat right before you dig in. Filled with Cajun battered squid, egg, fish cakes, and toppoki. Love the slightly creamy gravy that is sourish sweet and the spiciness kicks in after a few more sips of the gravy. Some of you who could not take spicy, this might be a challenge.

Cheese is part of the new trend in Korean food. For their fusion series, they do have Mac & Cheese that is serve on a hot pan, with sea of shredded melted cheddar. Another option is  Topokki & Cheese that is serve with a combination of rice cakes with creamy cheese sauce, chicken ham and bacon bits.

Kicking off with their chicken series, head for their classic Crispy Fried Chicken to start of with. A classic recipe that have it crunch outside and fill with nice mild fragrant after taste. Do not miss dipping into their special sauce where it do enhance the flavor of it. Learn the trick of using the chicken clip and it feels quite interesting. Indeed I do not need to find a basin to wash of but I still prefer using hand to enjoy my fried chicken.

Chir Chir (16.1)

Another of my personal favorite is this Honey Butter Chicken . Chicken is cook to perfection and also marination is season well. Taste of honey and butter were quite prominent yet chicken meat is not too dry. The sauce do give you a little sweet end that make the taste a great combination.

Chir Chir (17)

If you like punchy flavours, Garlicky Tenders is coated in special soy sauce and crunchy garlic bits. They have fried topokki too. Just bite the whole pieces as this is boneless chicken tenders that have sweet and slightly sticky combination.

Chir Chir (21)

Chicken wing lovers will fall in love with this as it is a whole plate of chicken wings. The Spicy Wings! Is caramelize in Chir Chir special sauce with sweet potato cubes and rice cakes. Almond bits were sprinkle ontop to give you additional nice crunchy bites.

Chir Chir (22)

Serve in a hot pan is this Spicy BBQ Roasted Chicken comes with oven-roasted chicken in spicy BBQ sauce. The effect is the same as Spicy topokki.  The usual thought when a food is wrap in aluminum foil is potato but this wrong we are wrong as it is  one whole salted baked egg, and a hearty serving of baked potato with sour cream.

Chir Chir (23)

The Nest Snow is the most interesting food presentation compare to others. Filled with Cajun chicken tenders, that sits in a sea of cream sauce and sweet potato mash, topped with freshly whipped cream and grated cheese. This portion is meant to share.

Got to know another Fried Chicken Brand that will be coming soon and do prepare to get your fingers dirty or use their little chicken clip when they operate in Pavilion in January.

*Another best way to enjoy this is by sharing. Often we say sharing is caring and this is certainly the time to share as  do come with a group of friends or with family members as the portion here is quite big.

With the latest trend, everything that evolves with cheese is in the menu. We ordered one of their latest item – Boneless Crispy Hot Snow Cheese Chicken @ RM 62. Serve with boneless chicken and half plate or cheese corn.

Nanda Chicken (10)

Let it cook for 3 minutes and after the cheese melted, the assistant will come over and show you how it should be quoted. Assistance is provided on the first few piece of chicken.

Nanda Chicken (11)

  1. take one piece and twirl it with cheese.
  2. Pull it up into the air where you can see the springy of the cheese, twirl it in mid air to allow it to be coated around.
  3. Once it is all coated like a cocoon, then it is ready to be eaten.

Chicken is fried to perfection where it is crispy inside out, meat might be slightly dry but overall it is not bad. Thick cheese give you the extra salty omph into the chicken. The best part is their spicy sauce and this is only 1 chili spicy level.. It does not hit you on the first piece, but it hits you after consuming subsequent piece. My tears keep flowing out. Their spiciness is different level. (do take note on the effect of next day when you hit washroom). Cannot imagine other chicken flavor that has 2 or 3 chili text on it. They also do have the non spicy version.

Overall it is not a bad place for Korean Friend Chicken and do come with a group of 4. Their cheese portion might not be big as other flavors is like mountain high. For classic Korean Fried Chicken I still like Chicken House which is just a street away. As for variety and ambiance, this place wins.

They do have delivery service too. Besides that, you can do your online shopping at Shopee (click here)

There were once a Korean Chicken fever, where with two main franchise chain in the big hit. It was not until Rif asked me, Hey! Have you tried this place before?” they serve one of the best Korean fried Chicken. I was like “nope” proudly. Till recently I gave it a try. Indeed, I vouch that what he said its true. Chicken House, located at Solaris KL is currently sits top in my list for best Korean Fried Chicken.

Chicken House (1)

Found out that, their original outlet was located in Ampang and this is their second branch.

Chicken House (2)

The design of the frontage was weird and did not look appealing that, one of the main reason that always prevent me from looking into their outlet.

Chicken House (3)

Besides the chicken, we tried their hot pot. In the menu, I really dislike their charges on hot pot where there are a few series and minimum must order by 2 pax, where each pax is RM 30 – RM 40 depending which series you are eating. No doubht that their hot pot is good, just that could not try more version . Love their Korean noodle and ended up ordered 2.
